Members of the Rotary Club of Little River and Rolling Thunder Chapter SC 3 and staff of the Veterans Welcome Home and Resource Center in Little River started work on the club’s district grant project on Sunday September 27th. The renovation project involves improvements to the office and living areas of the center in Little River.
In 2014, the Center acquired a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath house that has been converted into office space for the volunteers, and a temporary shelter for homeless veterans. The renovation project involves improving parts of the living area and office space including better sound-proofing between areas and updating the facility to make it more welcoming to both veterans and volunteers. The Center has been ranked among the top 100 sites for military & veterans assistance by Military Online Colleges and assists over 750 veterans per year.
The project is funded by a matching Rotary Foundation grant from Rotary District 7770 and the Rotary Club of Little River with volunteers from both the Rotary club and the Myrtle Beach chapter of Rolling Thunder performing demolition and site clean-up. For more information about the Center, please visit their website at www.VeteransWelcomeHomeAndResourceCenter.org. Information about the Rotary Club of Little River is available at www.RCofLR.org and the Myrtle Beach Chapter of Rolling Thunder SC 3 at www.RollingThunderGrandStrand.com.
